Direct-Manipulation Interface for Arranging Blocks in a Web Page

Try grabbing a block and dragging a block to a new position. Even headings, paragraphs, images, and forms can be dragged, but some such elements might be a little tricky for you to manipulate with the mouse.

This demo/prototype is only to present one idea of how a direct-manipulation interface (DMI) could look. Ultimately, the way a useful DMI would be programmed would probably be quite different.
